Hari's approach is to combine yoga in its true essence with the traditional detoxification science of Naturopathy. A large part of Hari Ji’s childhood was spent in serving and taking care of hundreds of sages and sadhus. Being a national level player in his youth, yoga was an essential part of his routine. However, he realized that in present times, the bodies of most people are full of emotional and other kinds of garbage, which hinders one’s growth. This led him to develop “Emotional Blockage” treatments as well as using Naturopathy detoxification.
One would rarely come across someone as humble and pleasant as Girish Ji. Even though he completed graduation in computer science and worked at Infosys (Leading Indian IT company) for about 3 years, he left all of it in his search for truth. He did Sadhana (meditation) at many places like South India, Nepal, Manali etc. A 10 day Vipassana Meditation in Pune changed his life forever. He was always interested in subjects like Anatomy and physiology, which pushed him to go for further studies. He has a degree of N.D.(Doctor of Naturopathy) and Y.D.(Doctor of Yoga).
Manmohan Rupal Ji is teaching Anatomy and Emotional Detoxification Kriyas. He is a double master degree holder in human psychology, a holistic healer and a life coach. Grown up under the parenthood of a naturopath father and Reiki master mother, Manmohan Ji was always inclined towards holistic healing from young age. Along with the fusion of psychological master degrees, Manmohan Ji has specialized himself in exclusive yogic psychotherapy which is proving to be a very effective tool in yoga practices to overcome psychosomatic disorders like depression and anxiety.
